Is it just a matter of time before Lieberman disavows his independence, becomes a Republican and throws the Senate back to the Right?

in two years Republicans are going to lose about 8 more seats. If he wants to keep his seats on committees he will need to stay a Dem. That is probably the only thing keeping him.

He's like Bush on one respect, he's so consumed with being right on this issue, no turn of events can convince him otherwise.
